Happy Dogs Rule Day!

You know how Hallmark created Mothers Day to sell cards? Well, dogs have their own industry created day now too! Pedigree has launched "Dogs Rule Day"--an international holiday just to celebrate dogs and to help out dogs in need. Like Mothers Day, it is a day to show your appreciation someone special in your life, but dogs don't need cards. Treats are accepted in lieu of cards.

If you are looking for ways to celebrate Dogs Rule Day, you can check out Pedigree's 101 ways to celebrate. Here are a few of my favorites:
  • Give an extra minute of bellyrubs in the morning
  • Play fetch till your arm falls off
  • Donate a bag of kibble to your local shelter
  • No baths
  • One treat, every half hour, all day long
  • Tell a good cat joke
  • Take your dog to a retirement home to share the love
  • No fireworks
  • Let a good piece of steak fall off the table
  • Full couch privileges
  • Open a new can of tennis balls
  • Visit a shelter, and say hi to every dog
Also on the list are plain old walks, runs, and snuggle time. We are easy to please--Just take today to appreciate the special dog in your life, and if you have time, help out some other dogs that aren't so lucky.
